Waiting for `Yudh`: Shah Rukh tells Amitabh Bachchan
Mumbai: Shah Rukh Khan, who took the small screen route to filmdom and stardom, has reached out to Amitabh Bachchan to say that he`s awaiting the launch of `Yudh`, which marks the Bollywood megastar`s debut in the fiction space on TV. SRK is sure the show will be "pathbreaking".
"@SrBachchan waiting for Yudh. Am sure it will be path breaking as all your other endeavours have been," Shah Rukh posted to Big B on Twitter Saturday.
Shah Rukh started his acting career with fictional TV shows such as `Fauji` and `Circus`. It was then that he was noticed and picked up for films. Whereas, the Big B made his TV foray only in 2000 with reality game show `Kaun Banega Crorepati`, which ended up changing the face of Indian television.
He has since hosted most seasons of KBC, barring one, for which SRK sat on the quizmaster`s chair.
Now, Big B, 71, will be seen in `Yudh`, a finite TV series ready to go on air.
Meanwhile, both the actors, who are sports enthusiasts, are busy catching up on the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2014.
